All Is Not Glam

Gunnar, 48×48 acrylic on canvas
Washington DC Artist Leslie Nolan in the Studio

It takes a lot of effort to install hanging wire, protective wrapping, box, and transport artwork from the studio to the gallery. Never mind the daily activity of submissions to exhibits, getting the word out, and all the nuts and bolts of being a working artist. Basically, it’s not all glamorous Non-creative work dominates if an artist expects the work to be sold and exhibited. The real saint in this endeavor remains the uncomplaining and patient assistant taking photos, putting screws in, and doing the heavy lifting.

Gunnar, above, is being wrapped for tomorrow’s transfer to the Allegany Arts Council along with Amy, which is also featured in the Cumberland MD exhibition August 6-27.
